Hi Jens:

 

I don't think I'm selling mine but want to put in a recommendation for the Kartmaster (think the current model is HD500). It collapses down quite small but expands out to the size of a junior magliner--you can even get lightweight shelves for it. It's heavy, but solid. I've had mine for 20 years or so, it's going strong.

Nice! Do you put your sled on it? Or do you use a stand next to it?

I used it more as a hauler in the Steadicam days. Now I sometimes use it as a monitoring station cart. The shelves are aluminum and fold up so the top one doesnt have much weight bearing capacity, but the bottom one being braced against the support of the cart structure is quite solid. It's an interesting design that has many pros and cons. Mostly, it takes up minimal space in a vehicle.

Anyone uses the Rock N Roller ones? http://www.bhphotovi...ansporters.html They are dead cheap! (Sorry Jens for highjacking your thread, I am also looking for the same kind of thing than you)

I'm toying with the idea of building it myself... Most of the parts are standard Flight case elements.
